Setting sail from Hong Kong

Hong Kong is a fantastic place to begin or end a cruise, a striking mix of ancient and modern, Chinese and British, and there is a lot more to the city than just skyscrapers and high finance. On Hong Kong Island itself you'll find the bustling financial centre of Central district, the more traditionally Chinese Western district and the shops of Causeway Bay, while on the mainland Kowloon Peninsula the district of Tsim Sha Tsui is where most of Hong Kong's best hotels are located, and the atmospheric markets of Mong Kok are just to the north.

Our tip

Take the Star Ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central. They have been carrying passengers since 1888, and these charming ferry boats offer an up-close look at Hong Kong’s much photographed skyline.

Arriving in Kobe

Small in size and cosmopolitan in its outlook, Kobe is a thoroughly pleasant city with a long and distinguished history as one of Japan's main trading ports. Kobe's past as a commercial hub is reflected in its architecture, with a number of unusually European-looking houses, as well as a charming, if slightly touristy, Chinatown. Kobe is overlooked by Mount Rokko, and you can take a cable car to the top for marvellous views. The city is also an important centre for sake production, so it's a great place to sample Japan's most famous tipple.

Don't miss

Kitano-cho was the centre of foreign trade in the 19th century, so here you can find the former mansions, Ijinkan, which are open to the public. A great area to just wander around.

Ways to make it better
Deluxe Harbourview Room at The Peninsula Hong Kong

Our favourite hotel in Hong Kong

The iconic Peninsula Hong Kong is, in our opinion, the city’s finest, and the Harbour View rooms offer picture postcard views of Victoria Harbour.

Lantau Island, Hong Kong

Explore Hong Kong

There’s more to Hong Kong than just the city, so explore Lantau Island, home to the Po Lin Monastery and its 34 metre high bronze Tian Tan Budda statue.

Hotel La Suite, Kobe

Where to stay in Kobe

We like Hotel La Suite right on the waterfront.

Japanese sake

Around Kobe

Go to the Sake breweries in the Nada district – much of the best sake comes from this region.
